Judge: Wheeler violated probation

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - New information in the case of a convicted cat hoarder in Chesterfield.

Thursday, a circuit court judge found Patti Wheeler in violation of her probation of her 2010 vandalism conviction.

She's not supposed to have or keep companion animals.

When we confronted Wheeler in January, we saw two cats in her hotel room.

She's out on bond now, but will return in April to find out her fate.
